Separation and Divorce

Every family dissolution is different and only a family lawyer can give you information specific to your situation. Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO) created general information booklets with reference phone numbers and web site addresses.

Getting Divorced

A divorce is the legal end of a marriage. This booklet is a useful resource that explains the divorce process. There is also preliminary information about support, division of property and custody of children.

CPP Benefits: Are You Entitled? Separated? Divorced?

An individual’s Canada Pension Plan (CPP) credits may be divided after separation or divorce. Workers and employers contribute to the CPP through their wages. Most self-employed people make CPP contributions through their tax returns. Someone who is separated or divorced may be entitled to a share of his or her former partner’s pension credits. This sharing is formally referred to as a “Division of Unadjusted Pensionable Earnings”.

Learn about this and more in this booklet.

The dissolution of a marriage raises questions about custody of and access to children. Custody is the right to make important decisions about the care and upbringing of a child. Access addresses the right of the other parent to spend time with the child.

This booklet explains the different types of custody and access.

Read this informative booklet about Child Support.

The first part of this booklet discusses child support:

  • what it is
  • how support is arranged
  • enforcement and
  • taxation

Part two explains how the federal government’s rules and tables are utilized to determine support payment amounts.
